Certainly one of the year’s biggest potential surprises is Jack Goes Boating, the directorial debut of Philip Seymour Hoffman. Back in late January, Roger Ebert called the film “[his] best Sundance experiece.” The screenwriter, Bob Glaudani, originally wrote this as a stage play, which was eventually released in an off-Broadway theater. Hoffman, John Ortiz, and Daphne Rubin-Vega, who star in the film, also starred in Glaudani’s production. The film’s fourth star is Amy Ryan, who will play Hoffman’s love interest.
Jack Goes Boating will hit theaters on September 17th. The embed below is in high-definition, but feel free to watch the trailer over at Apple as well.
